Our last competition of the season, the Autumn Meeting, took place at Benton Hall Golf Club with 56 members of the Society playing on the day. It was hot and sunny, though there was some wind to contend with. The course at Benton Hall looked stunning and the greens were in brilliant condition. With the dry conditions the ball was rolling and in total 10 pairs in the 4BBB competition, off full handicap, finished with 40 points or more on the challenging championship course. Our thanks to Benton Hall for hosting this event and to all the staff on the day. Thanks also to Hilary Adams host Lady Captain for her help with preparations and on the day, her large band of past Lady Captains on the course helping the competitors to get round in good time and Sue Ward Competition Secretary for taking charge of the results, no easy task where the majority of the prizes are decided on count back.
